There is a strange beauty and a strong rhythm of story within abandoned objects. They seem to observe the peculiarities of our everyday lives. The sculptures I make explore contemporary nomadism, miscommunication, and our peculiar relationships with utilitarian objects. Social and political issues are often aligned with the imagined life of an abandoned object. I aim to bring forward an element of both the comic and the tragic within a sculpture, to speak something of the curious absurdity that is being human.
Intrigued by the malleable boundary marking an object as a toy, an artifact or a sculpture, I produce works that suggest play, infer functional movement, and are finely crafted so that they appear as if they are actual relics from some oddball post-apocalyptic steampunk civilization.
